77 Reasons to Love Sports
From Joel Embiid‘s Twitter account to hockey mullets to Vince McMahon‘s strut to the ring, we listed 77 reasons we love sports, and it’s the best thing you’ll read today. If we left anything off, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know. For the record, I’d have included military reunions in the list, but someone told me they were played out.
The best movie of the 1980s
Actor Bernie Casey, who played eight seasons in the NFL, passed away yesterday at age 78. Casey became an actor after his career ended and famously starred as Lambda Lambda Lambda president U.N. Jefferson in Revenge of the Nerds. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Revenge of the Nerds is the best movie from the 1980s. I know it’s totally subjective, but I feel very strongly that inferior movies like Ghostbusters, The Breakfast Club and even Beetlejuice get all the press while ROTN doesn’t get the respect it deserves. Rant over.

Odds & Ends
I usually hate anything that has to do with the Yankees, but this is kind of genius … The most popular sneakers among NBA players (Kobe Bryant will be happy with this list) … Hard to disagree with Richard Sherman‘s take on NFL injury reports … Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are such great guys … Former MLB star Raul Mondesi has some some serious legal issues … Not sure what happened to Matt Harvey this season, but he is awful … Albert Haynesworth was attacked by the mother of his child (and he tweeted all about it) … Here’s one coach putting another coach in a chokehold at a third-grade football game … The Chargers’ move to L.A. seems like a big disaster … Joe Thomas is very optimistic … Avril Lavigne tops the list of the most dangerous people online.
